I am not musically inclined, I have no aptitude for dancing and I never learned how to play a musical instrument. I did have a harmonica when I was young, but I did not like it very much as it seemed to get covered with spit when it was in my mouth and that made it get all yucky and gross. I bet I could probably play the tambourine or the maracas, as that does not look like it takes much skill at all, and even a person with Parkinson’s disease can shake, but I never tried, so I just don’t know. The only thing worse than my dancing is my singing and if anyone ever heard me singing, they would usually ask me to please sing ‘Far, Far Away’, but I never learned the lyrics to that song. I am so far away from possessing any musical talent, doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore?
